Just a short blog today, as I need to start getting ready for work.

I got really hammered last night. Well, I was still walking and talking so I guess I wasn’t that hammered after all. I was dared to drink a long island iced tea made FROM SCRATCH. It was strong, sure, but I sipped it and took my time and got it down me. I felt a bit more drunk afterwards, but I wasn’t talking to God on the white telephone- so I guess I was still in good shape ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since I hadn’t had a decent nights sleep in forever, Nick let me stay in bed this morning and I slept for 10 hours. It was blissful ๐Ÿ˜€ Ahhh…I love my bed.

Anyway, off to get ready for work and then it’s off to Qdoba for dinner…mmm burritos ๐Ÿ˜€

I found it! ๐Ÿ˜€ I found a store not online that sells the Chatter Telephone! ๐Ÿ˜€ Linens N Things sells it (yeah, I was surprised they hav a toy department too). People looked at me strange when I took the photo of it, LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

After that, I decided to walk around the mall taking a few more pictures. About ten minutes later, I get a guy with a blue shirt come up to me and ask me if I have permission to take photos. I said no, I’m just taking them for fun. I thought it was just a guy messing around and then I see he has a radio. Hmmm…why am I not allowed to take photos of a mall? I’m stumped…it’s not like its a government facility…:p

So in a bit of a bad mood, I decide to go up to the food court for lunch. I ate Mandarin Chicken from Panda Express…it was yummy.

Today has been a weird day.

I ended up getting five hours sleep last night, out of my own fault of course. I went to bed at 4am after doing a bunch of stuff, and then my feet got cold and I couldn’t sleep. So I finally got to sleep when Nick came home from work at 6am. I love him being in bed with me because he’s always such a great heat source ๐Ÿ˜€

So I woke up at 11am and sat in front of the TV for a while with a cup of tea trying my hardest to wake up. Around 12pm, Miss Abby woke up from her nap so I get about getting her ready for this blasted party we have to go to at 2.30pm. And it was really boring. My idea of a party does not involve soup. The soup was really good, but since when do you have soup at a party?! My idea of a party is lots of beer, a grill going outside (or if it’s cold, someone making some good food like homemade fried chicken and mashed taters) and lots of loud music. No, this party had soup, boring middle-aged adults, high school kids and screaming toddlers. Definetely not my idea of fun ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It really wanted to make me leave when some woman started blathering about how cats were dangerous and unclean. Dangerous and unclean? I think she must have been talking about tigers or something…LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

My best thing about today is that the batteries finally came for my camera! ๐Ÿ˜€ And I made a new musical discovery- Miranda Lambert. I’d heard Bring Me Down and Kerosene before, but the rest of her album is a gem too. so I bought it on iTunes this evening ๐Ÿ˜€ She’s really pretty too…if I remember rightly, she’s a past Nashville Star contestant ๐Ÿ˜€

I just bought a toy for Abby that my brother used to have when he was younger:

I got it for $13. I love eBay ๐Ÿ˜€

I want one of these:

It’s called a Dunk Mug and they’re sold at Mocha Home. I just like the fact that you can put your biccies underneath and carry your cuppa without dropping aformentioned biccies- which I have done plenty of times. you cannot dunk broken biscuits ๐Ÿ˜‰

And I want one of these for Abby:

I had the exact same one when I was a kid. Seems as though their still making the retro-model, which is totally awesome. I love all the old Fisher-Price toys. i cannot wait until I go to my parents house with Nick and Abby and we can dig out all the old toys from mine and Steve’s childhood. Sure I can buy them on eBay, but what’s the point when I already have them? They’re just 3,000 miles away…LOL. The phone is sold at Back to Basics Toys for $15.99…yay! ๐Ÿ˜€

In the heat of the moment, I said some things I didn’t mean. I never meant that I wished that Abby was never born. Honestly. I love my little girl to pieces, it’s just that ass of a man she calls ‘Dada’ who I wish wasn’t around sometimes ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s a cute photo of a carrot-smeared Abby ๐Ÿ˜‰

And I was just going through the crap on my computer today, and found something that made me really happy. I bugged Nick for the rest of the day singing the Hershey jingles ๐Ÿ˜€ And now you can bug your loved ones too, ’cause here’s the video! ๐Ÿ˜€

Some days I wish that I wasn’t married, I didn’t have a daughter and that I was still in my bed at my parents house with a cup of tea watching some movie out of my collection on my small portable TV.

I had an argument with Nick tonight. He thinks I don’t listen to what he says. I was playing Bloodrayne and I was trying to kill this nest of these spider-type creatures. I had to throw a grenade at the nest- but I threw it in the wrong direction and blew up the elevator instead…oops. So I just hit the power button and told Nick that I’d just do the level over again. He throws an almighty fit at me saying that he told me to save the game and now I’m all pissy because I lost. (You’d be pissy if you were getting your ass kicked by a spider-type demon…LOL).

After that, I broke the safety gate for the kitchen and panicked that Nick was going to yell at me for breaking it- a full on panic attack. So he comes up to me, telling me to calm down. Telling someone who is having a panic attack to calm down is like poking an angry dog with a stick- it just makes the problem five times worse.

So he stormed off to work without saying goodbye and slamming the door on the way out. Hopefully, he has a really crappy night at work and comes home in a better mood…please, I hope so. That’s my one thing I dislike about my hubby, he doesn’t understand my panic attacks. He thinks I’m just being dramatic. Pffftt…fuck him.

I am currently sitting here eating Chex Mix and drinking beer. Abby is asleep for the time being (which is nice), the cats aren’t bugging me, but I still have an ass-load of dishes to do. I am so angry though, I just feel like going back on Bloodrayne and kicking some spider butt. Ha!
